Having trouble staying the course

Monday, January 10, 2011

Whenever I start a new diet, I always find it difficult to stay with it until I reach my goals. My days start off great but when it gets to the evening I'm tempted to go off course. I know this happens to a lot of people but I feel I'm susceptible because I usually do this alone anf my family members usually unintentionally encourage bad habits. Now that I'm using sparkpeople, I hope this will be successful this time and hope to meet more persons like me so we can motivate each other and help each other to stay on track!!!

    First you should think of this as a new healthy lifestyle that you are going to do for the rest of your life!! There will be obstacles for you but you need to stop and think how bad do I really want this!! I thought I would never reach my goal but I did because of preservance and determination!! You can do this!! As far as the evenings are concern you should plan your meals to allow yourself that one thing you really like(IN MODERATION). Find something you can do in the evening that will take your mind off of those temptations!! Call a friend, write a blog, read a book, and put on some music and dance!! emoticon emoticon

    I have the same issue sometimes. What I do is plan my meal in advance, allowing room for some health evening snacks.

    Think of it as starting a healthier lifestyle and not just a diet. Count your success as much in healthy choices as in weight lost. Family dynamics are difficult but be consistent and persistent in your responses to their offers of food, etc and soon they will stop offering. Be kind and patient with yourself! emoticon
